Getting Ready for Thomas Moran Plein Air Competition at Zion
l just finished another studio painting of Zion National Park. "Layers of Time" features the streaked wall and beehives which are prominent as you start the road up Zion Canyon from the junction. My view is from further up Bridge Mountain. Now I start preparations for the week-long plein air competition and sale in Zion National Park, "In the Footsteps of Thomas Moran."
The event kicks of Monday as 24 artists spread out over Zion and begin painting on location. Visitors will receive a map when they enter the park showing some of the locations where artists will be working. I will teach a two-hour workshop (filled) on Monday, then will paint at the Nature Center for a couple of hours. Hopefully I will be able to make a few posts here as the event progresses. Wish me luck!
